I've had a trying week (photography-wise) trying to scan 6x6 negatives that I'd made with my Yashica Mat. I've had pretty good results before and I had expected a straightforward workflow using my Epson 2400. Anyway needless to say I won't be posting any just yet. As far as I could tell the negatives look good and should scan well but the careless folk at the processors have introduced a snowstorm of dust AND on the best exposure a b****y great big thumb print. I can hear Ian Willson chuckling from here. So, back to the drawing board. This is why digital is so appealing. So to lift my spirits (and I hope yours) here are some Fuji S2 images from the April 2005 Longest Crawl roadtrip. These images were shot as we bimbled about on the ferry about to depart for Knoydart and the Old Forge, reputed to be the most remote public house in Britain. As black and white images I'd say they are pretty much everything I would like them to be. And if I tire of them I can fire up Adobe's superb Lightroom 2.0 and 're-imagine' them.

My Ceredigion and Cardigan Bay
Welcome to the blog of Paul Williams, Ceredigion resident since 1970. I am a graduate of what was once known as St David's University College, at Lampeter. I played bass in Dyfed's first punk band, The Repeaters. Then living in Llandewi Brefi, we had a grandstand view of Operation Julie. Eventually, after 2 years playing bass in Brighton's 256th punk band, I returned to Wales to deal in books and then antiques. I have trained and worked as a counsellor, I am a photographer, blog and web builder and I publish the annual Wales Antiques Guide. I am married and a father of one.
